GeForce GTX 1060 retires – Steam gamers have a new favorite graphics card. This is a GeForce RTX 3060, but there is one caveat

The GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card is the most popular among Steam gamers. Perhaps this news will seem strange to someone, but it is true, albeit with one caveat.

Today we have already reviewed the regular Steam monthly statistics, and the leader there was still the GeForce GTX 1060, which has held this title for a very long time. However, there is a nuance.

The fact is that before the advent of the GTX 30 line, Steam statistics did not divide GeForce adapters into desktop and mobile, but starting with Ampere cards, such a division appeared. And if you add up the shares of the desktop and mobile RTX 3060, it turns out that the adapter occupies 7.52% of this market against 6.94% for the GTX 1060. In fact, the RTX 3060 is 0.03 p.p. bypassed its predecessor (two generations later) back in August, but only now they paid attention to it.

Indeed, in recent months, this Nvidia adapter has gained quite a bit, which is probably due to price cuts. True, if we recall the separation of mobile and desktop cards, it is the mobile one that is in the lead, which is very unusual, but for this particular couple this situation is familiar.

Thus, now it is the GeForce RTX 3060 that is the most popular and widespread video card among gamers on Steam and, most likely, the card will only continue to strengthen its dominance.

Radeon RX 7900 XT and XTX vs GeForce RTX 4080

The Radeon RX 7900 graphics cards will be released on December 13, and reviews will be published on the same day. But thematic resources were allowed to share the unpacking today.

Despite the fact that the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT are as similar as possible on the outside, they are still not identical. The older model has a length of 287 mm and weighs 1.8 kg, while the younger one, with a mass of 1.5 kg, is characterized by a length of 267 mm. By the standards of modern Nvidia flagships, these are very compact solutions. In addition, they occupy only 2.5 expansion slots instead of three or four for the new GeForce RTX 40 products. Actually, the general photo clearly shows how much smaller AMD new products are.

Of the less significant, we can note two power connectors (8 + 8), an air temperature sensor immediately behind the fan, as well as the same three red stripes on the radiator. It turns out that they symbolize the third generation of cards based on the RDNA architecture.

The 900 Radeon RX 7900 XT outperforms the 1200 GeForce

Following the older sister, the Radeon RX 7900 XT also appeared in the Geekbench database, which will be sold at a price of $ 900.

The $900 Radeon RX 7900 XT outperforms the $1,200 GeForce RTX 4080. But only in one test.

Now we have the results of both new AMD products in the same tests. And if cards from different manufacturers in such benchmarks can only be compared conditionally, then a comparison of cards from the same line is more revealing.

So, the RX 7900 XT scores about 205,600 points in OpenCL, and the result in Vulkan is about 162,200 points.

The $900 Radeon RX 7900 XT outperforms the $1,200 GeForce RTX 4080. But only in one test.

The $900 Radeon RX 7900 XT outperforms the $1,200 GeForce RTX 4080. But only in one test.

In the first case, this is exactly the level of the GeForce RTX 3090, in the second, the new AMD is confidently ahead of the more expensive RTX 4080 by $ 300.

If we talk about comparing the RX 7900 XT and XTX, the second one is about 10% faster. Actually, the price difference between them is almost the same, so the cards should be very close in terms of their profitability.

Recall that the price of the RX 7900 XT, according to available data, will compete with the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. New AMD cards will be released on December 13th.

It is reported that this price has already been named to Nvidia partners. If the new product really costs $ 900, the RTX 4080 will not be able to get much cheaper. Recall, there are rumors that Nvidia will reduce the price of this adapter, but the card costs $1,200. Considering $900 for the RTX 4070 Ti, perhaps the RTX 4080 will drop in price by just $100. However, this is still just a rumour.

It’s also worth pointing out that if you’re looking solely at performance in TFLOPS, as it’s already known for the new card, the RTX 4070 Ti will outperform its older sister, offering 0.04459 TFLOPS per dollar versus 0.04065 TFLOPS per dollar for the RTX 4080. In comparison, the RTX 4090 scores as high as 0.05165.

In terms of actual performance, according to Nvidia’s own slides, the new product will perform on par with the RTX 3090 Ti or slightly weaker, but will outperform the latter when DLSS is activated.

As a reminder, new AMD graphics cards are also entering the market on December 13, and the RTX 4070 Ti will be a direct competitor for the Radeon RX 7900 XT.
